    N4 Workbench Color Scheme Change

    Doing my first N4 Jace, I take 3 anti-depressants a day, this default gray and white scheme is making me even more depressed, is there away to change the color scheme of the workbench interface?

    Under the tools drop down go to options and change the theme from zebra to lucid.

    God I hate zebra. I feel it was forced on us by a secret cult of color blind Illuminati.

    You can have all the colors you want as long as their gray.

    Look in C:/Niagara/Niagara-4.XXX/modules/ and find either "themeZebra-ux.jar" or "themeLucid-ux.jar".

    Make a copy of one of those modules and set it to the side for a backup.

    Make another copy and place it somewhere where you can work on it (new folder on your desktop, for instance). Take it and rename it to .zip instead of .jar. Extract it and navigate to the "fx" folder. You'll find a theme.css. Open that with something like Notepad++ and you can edit the color scheme. It will take some trial and error as the descriptions in the css file aren't the greatest, so you just have to make a change/try it out, make a change/try it out.

    Once your done editing, take the root folder "themeWhatever-ux" and zip it up. Rename it back to .jar and place it back in the modules folder.

    FYI, to change file extension types, you have to have "hide extensions for known file types" unchecked in the Windows Folder Options, under Appearance and Personalization in the control panel. Alot of people have trouble with this.

    Distech takes it a step further and uses a custom theme that replaces the gray with a nasty green color. I have to shield my eyes with every new release until I can change it back to Lucid.

    Trend does one up and removes the lucid theme totally. Have to suck it from another brand and force the issue to get back to the colored world.

    Convinced the all grey tone theme is to get us used to confinement in a prison cell.
